Hazard County – Porcupine Ridge – A Nice Break

Just got back from a much needed mini vacation to two places I love, Black Mountain Ranch and Moab, Utah to downhill bike the famous Hazard County and Porcupine Ridge trail.

The ride took close to 6 hours with plenty of stops for lunch, snacks and photos.  It was as described, as epic as they come.  I feel a bit hooked on the sport.


Fire Road The Valley

My first real drop

I took over 300 pictures, mostly from the car window.  I decided to take any backroad I could find, and ended up traveling over 120 miles on dirt roads (of the 1200 miles I drove).

It was fun to go back to a farm and see the old friends.  The perfect break.

    Nice photos. It's a fantastic ride. Did you get on the UPS/LPS singletrack above Porcupine? That's some great riding. You can also start from up on top of Glacier/Burro Pass at the top of the La Sals and ride all the way down. It's called either Burro to Town (by the locals) or The Whole Enchilada.

    The UPS/LPS was closed for some reason. I was told about the Whole Enchilada. Sounds like an exhausting day!
